    I see 4 pix that are far too blurry to be helpful. I didn't realize that anyone used photobucket any more.

    I don't know if you meant that those sticks were Boeshield-based, but I do recall them, or similar ones. When I used to make the rounds of the machine shops in Detroit, places like Production Tool,...

    Seriously, though, that looks nice a nice job you've done.

    The search function can be useful. Yes, it could be improved, but there are other things I'd rather see tinkered with first (e.g.,implementing 1-click logons). I have to say I personally don't...

    Nicely illustrated post, Demon. Sounds like you're going to wind up a happy man.
    Re your tooling request, you might try a Wanted in Tony's listing.

    I had a look through a few of my Starrett catalogs for item "950". Pulling out 5 older catalogs and looking in the item number index in each, there was nothing listed for #950. These 5 catalogs...

    Yeah, I just got a letter from AmEx. But unlike the eBay thing, there was no provision for an opt-out. They just went ahead and did it unilaterally.

    I doubt that, but that is the only alternative for submission that is mentioned on the opt-out form.

    Bob is right about this when it comes to drilling out. The minor diameter of the tap is down around .060, so something in the 50's at the largest would be what's wanted. That's pretty delicate...

    perforating machine

    Another lots-to-look-at from Shorpy. This one is from 1938, US Bureau of Engraving & Printing. The machine produces the perforations on sheets of stamps.
